Alonna & Stephon’s Romantic Engagement Pictures at Gaylord National in Maryland

Images: Megapixels Media

Attempting to return to the normalcy of blogging with a super gorgeous engagement session at the Gaylord National in National Harbor, Maryland. I’m in LOVE with the green lace dress that Alonna wore for the session, and the way it plays off the tropical greens in the interior of the convention center’s lobby. These two are gorgeous but also full of smiles. I was happy to see some great shots of the two of them laughing together in the submitted set – I almost ALWAYS opt to publish those kinds of pictures here, than too many posed ones. They are SO much more infectious in my opinion. Ok enough from here, here’s some love for your Wednesday.

From the photographer: They danced through a tropical indoor garden, although we were in the midst of winter they kept each other very cozy.

We met as kids when we both attended the same Middle School! We met again as adults at Our Godson’s basketball game! How crazy is it that we share a Godson and hadn’t seen each other since middle school!

Laura Beth & Jascha’s Butterbee Farm Engagement Pictures in Baltimore, Maryland

Greetings from beautiful Wells, Vermont. It’s officially family vacation time for me and after (somewhat) surviving the 9+ hour car ride (split over two days with a stop in NJ) with a non-napping toddler, we are finally in vacation mode on the lake. It’s GORGEOUS up here and I will try my best to get some blogs up this week, including today’s adorable farm engagement session in Baltimore. These adorable met online and work on a floral farm – where these pictures take place. Hope you guys have a great week while we enjoy all that the farmlands of VT have to offer.

I moved back to Baltimore a few years ago to start my flower farm, Butterbee Farm. I had just gotten out of a relationship around the same time, so I went on OK Cupid to distract myself. I got a message from Jascha, who had just graduated from MICA’s painting program, and was interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle.

Neither of us thought online dating was going to help us meet someone for real, so we were both totally authentic with each other on our first date. We met at my farm, where he helped me plant and weed for a few hours. I wore my normal dirty farming jeans and T shirt. I figured if it was meant to be, he wouldn’t mind!

Another weekend come and gone and Andy is FINALLY done working insane hours. It was so nice to have a “normal” day together yesterday as a family – meeting neighbors at the local park, organizing & cleaning the office, and mostly just spending time together :) We have a great week ahead on the blog and I am looking forward to the not AS ghastly hot temperatures. Here’s a gorgeous engagement session to get your Monday going.

I remember when I met this lady my now soon to be wife. I had nothing, she had nothing. She was fresh out of college just moved back to Baltimore. I had just lost my apartment due to me losing my job at the time. We exchanged numbers via Twitter. We talked on the phone for about 3 months just getting to know each other before we even went on a date. After the long conversations day in and day out we finally went on our first date. From there we never looked back.

We built a friendship than built a relationship. We helped each other find jobs which we both lost and later found careers. It took me no time to realize that this was the woman for me! I thank spoke with her parents and got their blessings. I planned a surprise engagement party which then I proposed as soon as she came through the door, she cried I cried as she said YES! Till this day I still crush! We still build and we still grow! Love! #FrinksToBe

Well another weekend has come and gone. Andy & I survived a trip to IKEA yesterday and it was nice to kind of just “be” around DC this weekend. We watched Spotlight on Friday and then Saturday night we enjoyed dinner & some beers on our deck … even with an uninvited guest hanging out. Yesterday I made Andy takes some promo snaps of the new additions to our online store – more Capitol Romance Wedding Planners, but this time in Purple & Teal! We are first completing our VERY FIRST wholesale agreement (!!) with the new colors and will then have the additional binders up in the shop, ASAP. I can’t wait for you to see them!

For today we have an adorable, laid-back Baltimore, MD engagement session. I love the smiles & laughter in this shoot and just how comfortable the two are with each other and in front of the camera. Plus the bride to be is a Harry Potter fanatic. Need a I say more? Just what I needed to get this week going.

How they met:

Jeremy and I grew up 5 minutes from each in Edison, NJ. Whenever I tell people that they seem surprised we weren’t high school sweetheart or something – easy explanation. We didn’t really roll with the same crowds! He was a jock and I loved math. Jeremy swears I must have knew who he was as “he was kind of a big deal” but honestly, I just really loved math, hated sports and wasn’t even allowed to date in high school!

It wasn’t until my sophomore year at Rutgers University when a mutual friend introduced us, I’ll never forget the first night we met in the basement of a gross Rutgers fraternity. We bonded over our foreign parents and loveeee for 1/2 priced appetizers at Applebee’s.

A few weeks later after collecting all of our quarters we had our first date at approximately 10:01pm. We shared 8 appetizers and 2 waters. Jeremy recently told my friends he knew he had met the love of his life when I ordered 4 apps on a first date. #FOODISLIFE

What a weekend Romancers! We kicked off our 2016 wedding season with the most bad ass DC local wedding. Our fav venue, an insanely awesome vendor team, and the bride wore BLACK. Really can’t think of a better way to get into the wedding season this year. Hope you guys all had a great weekend too, despite the cold & rain (and even a little snow). Here’s an adoraaaable vintage inspired, record store engagement session in Maryland. The outfits alone are enough to get me through this Monday. Enjoy!

From the photographer:

Their story is actually quite cute. He is a police officer, she is a 911 operator, and they met outside a Wawa while he was on duty. The first time they met she had a boyfriend so they just talked. Then a year later after running into each other multiple times at the same Wawa he found out she was single and finally asked her out. They love pin-up style photos so we took to Downtown Frederick for their engagement session. We went into an old fashioned record store to create the perfect Save the Dates.

From the couple:

We met at Wawa around Feb/March 2011. I was with my friend and we had just gotten off work we were sitting in my car and we saw Matt pull up in his patrol car. He came up to us and started talking to us. We would chat at Wawa for a few months then we gave each other our numbers and went on our first date at havre de grace on June 12, 2011. We got engaged on September 13, 2016 at havre de grace where we had our first kiss! :)
